The FIFA Confederations Cup 2017, which is being held in Saint Petersburg, Moscow, Kazan and Sochi from 17 June to 2 July, is not only the first major international football tournament to be held in Russia, it is also a chance to see the new-look side in competitive action ahead of Russia 2018, since the Sbornaya are not involved in the qualifiers.

What can be more prestigious for a coach than preparing your country for the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 and 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, which are both taking place on home soil? This is not only an honour, but a huge responsibility and a difficult task. It is even more complicated for Stanislav Cherchesov, as the Russian national team is currently in a period of transition.

You can watch the whole interview with the Russia head coach on FIFA.com.
